We can all do our bit this New Year to curb Covid and ease pressures on the NHS, Norfolk’s leaders said today, in the face of rising case numbers.

Covid vaccinations: please wait for your appointment
29 Dec 2020

People in Norfolk and Waveney are being reminded that Covid-19 vaccinations are taking place by invite and appointment only. 

Yesterday a number of members of the public arrived at James Paget University Hospital without an appointment, asking to be vaccinated despite not being contacted by their GP and not having an appointment booked – claiming they had seen a post on Facebook saying they could simply turn up to receive the jab. The NHS is not able to administer a Covid-19 vaccine to you without you having an appointment.

St John’s Surgery at Terrington St John, near King’s Lynn, has today joined eight other GP practice sites across Norfolk and Waveney to begin vaccinating patients against Covid-19.

The GP sites will be acting as ‘primary care hubs’; vaccinating patients from their own practice as well as other neighbouring practices.

Those who are most at risk from Covid-19 are being prioritised first; members of the public who are over 80 years-old, care home workers and a small number for at risk frontline NHS staff.
